The protective mechanisms of first aid training within a school-based program for early adolescents

Reveruzzi, Bianca (2015) The protective mechanisms of first aid training within a school-based program for early adolescents. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis was concerned with the protective mechanisms of first aid training in the context of peer support. Using a randomised control trial design the current program of research explores first aid training in the school setting and identifies the key components of effective school-based first aid training programs. In particular, examining whether first aid training and associated knowledge could be protective for early adolescents. This broader framing considered whether first aid impacted on increasing behaviour and attitudes towards helping an injured friend, and reducing personal risk taking and related injury.
